Want a unique theatre experience at Indiana Wesleyan University this summer?

For those in high school eager to experience theatre with the Guild, this week-long camp will include workshops in stagecraft and acting; recreation and games; rehearsals; and a final Friday-night performance of one-act plays. As a resident camper, students will eat meals in Baldwin, stay in residential halls on campus, and participate in activities throughout campus. The camp will include master classes with IWU Theatre faculty and undergraduates that will hone performance and technical skills.

Outside of theatre, campers will also have opportunities to experience fine arts learning in music and art. Fees will include a camp T-shirt, all meals, lodging, major activities, and theatre classes and workshops. See you in June!
